L-O-V-E!! I've been obsessing over Mary Kate Steinmiller's ever since I saw them in the Coveteur. Glad to know about Frieda & Nellie! And of course love your mixture - great inspiration for the summer! x Kelly

Nice bracelets! I remember that I also made such "friends savers" in my childhood.

I recently bought a jazzed up version myself. Then I was regretting it. You know, all "Will this ridiculous now that I'm not nine?" But you've renewed my enthusiasm. Going to wear it with confidence tomorrow! And oh how I wish I remembered how to make these myself...

I have to admit...I am a little obsessed with these! As a child of the 80's they are a must! Check out Ettika.com for fabulous affordable versions!

I have been here...just not posting...sadly my yellow lab Krimpet (13) had to be put to sleep just before Easter. We have all been so heartbroken. He looked so much like Jumby the picture makes my heart hurt.

These days I still wear a friendship bracelet, but of the Links of London kind. I will add a handmade friendship bracelet from Soph when we resume crafting. For now, she has moved on to Minecraft. OMG. Anyway this Links of London one holds a lot of memories too. My sister Hanni and I got one each during our trip to Hong Kong. It’ll always remind me of that trip and my amazing time with her.
